"Here's another fine mess you've 
gotton us into." 

Oliver Hardy 





Falcons are small, powerful birds that are related 
to the hawk and can be found throughout the 
world. 

The falcons aerial strength and agility are excep- 
tionally good. They use this ability in combination 
with their powerful, curved, sharply taloned feet, 
to capture their prey. A small, curved, sharp beak 
with a tooth like projection is used to tear their 
food apart which, is a diet consisting of birds, small 
mammals, and insects. Falcons can be identified by 
their bare legs. 

The falcon is symbolic of the spirit of Minne- 
chaug; it is strong, free, and proud as it soars above 
all others. The falcon represents our school as it is 
the name of our athletic teams and school mascot. 






Who will Remember 

the life we know now? 

The close and distant relationships 

the moment of inner struggle 

and discovery of truth 

The glimpses of life which opened 

our eyes . . . 

The encounters that seemed so 

small 

but grew as we did 

who can remember?

"What's up Doc?" 




12 




Saturday, June 18, 1983 is the day that marked 
a mile-stone to all American women. On this 
day 32 year old, Sally Ride, America's first space- 
bound woman, and her crew began their jour- 
ney aboard the Space Shuttle Challenger. 

Ride's mission was to operate the Shuttles 50 
foot long Remote Manipulator System, to pluck 
a German-built experimental package called the 
Shuttle Pallet Satellite out of the cargo bay and 
let it orbit freely into space. 

The Challenger flight was cut short on June 
24th due to bad weather and made its prema- 
ture landing at Edward's Air Force Base. When 
asked why she was chosen for the flight, she 
answered, "A good educational background 
and one that showed I could learn new things 
readily."

Minnechaug High .... School is a pattern of 
concrete, wood, glass, paint, and brick; yet it is 
people who make it unique. 

"The best thing about the future is that it comes 
only one day at a time." 

Abe Lincoln 



Our task now is not to fix the blame 

for the past 

but to fix the course for the future. 

J. F. K. 

"This country will not be a good place for any of us 
to live unless we make it a good place to live in."

Having completed another summer, we 
enter the new school year wiser and more 
mature. Summer break has given us the op- 
portunity to relax, enjoy ourselves, and grow 
through new experiences. It's given us time 
to sort out our feelings and thoughts for the 
future. 

As school begins we also begin to plan a 
direction for the new year, some of us for 
our lives. We anticipate reuniting with 
friends and also in making new ones whom 
we can share our good times and bad times 
with. Hopefully this year will be a terrific one 
for all people, not just here at Minnechaug, 
but throughout the world.

class officers 




Ted Moore (president), Mr. Martin Kibbe (class advisor), Rick Thorpe (vice president), Kelly 
Morissette (secretary), Carole Cibb (treasury). 



Some of Minnechaug's 
most enjoyable experiences 
were the result of the class 
officers' hard work. Class 
president, Ted Moore, with 
Vice President Rick Thorpe, 
Secretary Carol Gibb, and 
Treasurer Kelly Morrissette, 
all worked closely together 
with Mr. Martin Kibbe (class 
advisor) to ensure some 
smooth, eventful years. Had 
they not taken the time to 
come up with unique ideas, 
organize activities, take care 
of paper work, and work well 
together; nothing would've 
been accomplished nor been 
as successful! 

Freshman year, they spon- 
sored a dance in which the 
seventh and eighth graders 
were invited to Minnechaug. 
Sophomore year, with the 
support of the homeroom 



representatives, the class offi- 
cers promoted the Dunkin 
Donut's coupon drive. Addi- 
tionally, the traditional class 
ring sale occurred during 
sophomore year. Then, Ju- 
nior year was the year of the 
magazine drive, which was 
very unique in style. An as- 
sembly was held in the audi- 
torium, incentive prizes were 
shown, and a goal was set. 
Never before was our class 
spirit so evident. Finally, this 
class spirit was continued into 
Senior year, the Fifties Days 
Dance, the Senior Breakfast, 
the Senior Prom, the Senior 
Banquet, and finally, Gradu- 
ation. 

Thanks to our class officers 
and advisor; the class of 1984 
now has four years of fond 
memories. Thank you all for 
such a successful class.

'Time of your life, huh, kid?" -Risky Business 




64 



The class of 1984 would like to 
thank Mr. Martin Kibbe for guiding 
us through all four years at Minne- 
chaug. Four years ago, when he be- 
came our class advisor, he had no 
previous experience as an advisor. 
He had no idea what he was getting 
himself into. It didn't stop him from 
taking the job. Mr. Kibbe was not 
bothered by all of the hassles, frus- 
trations, and time involved in work- 
ing with our class. He not only 
helped to make our funding drives a 
great success, but he increased the 
spirit and motivation of our class. 

Although he has been a hockey 
coach for twelve years, he was still 
willing to give the job his best shot. 
He believes that being a class advisor 
has made him a better person. He 
enjoys meeting people and learning 
from the students he works with so 
closely. He especially enjoyed work- 



ing with Ted Moore and our other 
loyal class officers. 

We can all say with honesty that 
Mr. Kibbe has made our four years 
here at Minnechaug interesting and 
rewarding. We wish him the best of 
luck in the coming years.

In Memory of . . . 




I rushed home from school to tell my mother the 
exciting events that had happened at school. As I burst 
through the door, I realized that my mother, Jean O'Neil, 
was dead. That fact is one of the hardest facts I've had to 
face up to, realizing my mother is dead. As tears trickle 
down my face one-by-one, my exciting event has left me, 
and I change to awareness-aware of the truth that my 
mother was more than a teacher, she was everyone's 
friend and she touched the lives of many. She loved 
Broadway, especially Joseph and Chorus Line. Listening 
to the things that my mother loved really upset me, but 
afterwards, I relaxed and slowly left my state of 
depression, knowing how many lives she filled with 
happiness and joy. 

jean O'Neil went on, until she could go no further. She 
was most of all a mother; but also a teacher, a person 
who made many lives special, in her own loving way. I 
will never forget her, and anyone who is a part of her life 
will never forget her either. I can admit their is an 
emptiness in my life, but I rejoice in the times she gave 
me, instead of depressing myself in the fact that she's 
gone. 






Gone but not forgotten 
Your love we still feel 
You'll always be with us 
Mrs. O'Neil 

You were always a friend 
beyond compare. 
You taught us that English 
took a great deal of care 

However, above all 
things that you prized 
you always loved life 
without compromise 

We'll always love you 
wherever you are 
but somehow I feel 
that your not all that far.

They plan and organize such things 
as dances and fundraisers. The big- 
gest fundraiser during the four years 
at Minnechaug is the magazine drive 
during Junior Year. The entire junior

Sophomore gym is the most exciting of all. Where 
else can you find the thrill of being suspended on a 
wire with only a rope to hold you, and your classmates 
below cheering you on? 

Project Adventure is it- unlike any other class offered 
at Minnechaug. Project Adventure teaches the stu- 
dents to trust and cooperate with their classmates. 

Such events as the wobbily walk, the trust fall, and 
the wall are used in this interesting gym course. When 
all's over and done sophomore's can breathe easier 
knowing that they will never again have to go through 
another semester of Project Adventure!

We do something dumb, 

completely ridiculous, 

and we laugh hysterically for 20 minutes. 

People who are not included 

think we are crazy 

immature, abnoxious. 

It's hard for them to understand 

the fun we have when 

we're with each other 

because they're our own games, 

our own group. 

We can also be serious. 

They sometimes can't understand our problems 

Why are we so upset about coming in at 10 o'clock? 

We are good support for each other 

Just having friends near 

makes everything easier.

What's the most terrifying experience 
that an incoming Freshman can ever 
have? Yes, you guessed it a trip through 
Minnechaug's notorious 'ARENA'. 

For Freshmen and new students alike, 
Arena can be the most frightening and 
frustrating experience. The first day of 
school can change any Freshman's mind 
about wanting to be a high school stu- 
dent! 

Arena begins with a long line to get in 
and many more inside. It means getting 
computer cards for every class and then 
finding out that one is filled up and you 
must start all over again-How Frustrating!!! 

After all the computer cards are in or- 
der: then come the study cards. Then the 
never ending locater cards.

I Loved You Enough 



Some day when my children are old enough to under- 
stand the logic that motivates a mother, I will tell them: 

I loved you enough to ask you about where you were 
going, with whom, and what time you would get home. 

1 loved you enough to insist that you buy a bike that we 
could afford to give you with our own money. 

I loved you enough to be silent and let you discover that 
your hand-picked friend was a creep. 

I loved you enough to make you return a Milky Way, with 
a bite out of it, to a drugstore and confess, "I stole this." 

I loved you enough to stand over you for two hours while 



you cleaned your room, a job that would have taken me 
fifteen minutes. 

I loved you enough to let you see anger, disappointment, 
disgust, and tears in my eyes. 

I loved you enough to admit I was wrong and ask for your 
forgiveness. 

I loved you enough to let you stumble, fall and hurt. 

I loved you enough to let you assume the responsibility for 
your actions at 6, 10, or 16. 

But, most of all, I loved you enough to say NO when you 
hated me for it. That was the hardest part of all.

football 



The 1983-84 Falcon Football team continued in its winning 
ways and had the finest record in the school's history. The 
squad remained undefeated throughout the season while 
scoring a total of three points. The highlight of the season 
come in the last regular season game as the Falcons crushed 
arch-rival Classical, 35-14. It marked the first time in several 
years the Falcons beat the Bulldogs, and also meant a birth in 
the Super Bowl. 

Leading the team through this outstanding season were 
senior tri-captains Rick Thorpe, Geoff Thomas, and Karl 
Chambers. Thorpe and Chambers were top notch offensive 
backs along with thousand-yard gainer Dan Macero. Macero 
also led the team and league in touchdowns and total points. 
Also playing well offensively were seniors Mike Vicowski 



and Pete Sares and junior kicker Mike Trombley performed 
admirably while receivers Will Tyschen and Glen Garvey 
fought everything thrown to them. 

The defensive and offensive line was a key ingredient as 
they provided excellent blocking and pass coverage and 
accumulated many sacks and fumbles. Leading the way was 
Captain Thomas along with burly Sterling Dickinson, Ron 
Young, Bernt Auslanter, Pete Alberci and sophomore stu- 
dent Mike Chambers. 

Head coach Mr. Dave Bennett, in charge for only two 
years, was assisted by Mr. Golferi, Mr. Mina, Mr. Brunell, and 
Mr. Sullivan. Best of luck to the coaches and returning let- 
termen for another Super Bowl season next year.

cheerleading 



This year's cheerleaders worked very hard and it really 
paid off as they were at top form throughout the fall season. 
Much of the credit goes to the coach, Mrs. Bennett. She was 
appreciated and respected as was Senior Captain, Donna 
Farrell, whose efforts made the team the best. 

Seniors, Kris Gwatkin, Carole Gibb, and Tyna Hurley, all 
displayed their talents and showed much school spirit. The 
underclassmen made up most of the team and represented 



the team well. They were juniors, Stephanie Hersman, Alyssa 
Labine, Anne Tenbrook, Pam Smith, and Sharon and Tracy 
Christianson, along with sophomores Noel Rihm and Erin 
Tierney. 

The girls had many responsibilities this fall as they cheered 
regularly for football and soccer games, as well as organizing 
the pep-rally, which was a great success.

soccer 



It was a tough year for Minnechaug Soccer, as the 
team suffered through a disappointing season. Leading 
the team were captains and three-year lettermen, Bill 
Gallant and Bill Downes. Gallant led the team in goals 
for the second straight year and Downes tallied the most 
assists. Both finished among the top ten in total points. 
Also supplying offensive firepower were Senior spark- 
plug, Joe Michaud and Sophomore Jeff Jones. The 
defense meanwhile was anchored by Senior fullback, 
Ted Moore, Sophomore, John O'Shaughnessy, and all- 
star Senior goalie Jim Boucher, who consistently made 
spectacular saves. 



The Seniors 



Other members of the squad who played for their last 
year were back-up goalie, Rich Shults, fullback Tim 
Sullivan, lineman Bob Boilard, and halfback Frank 
Schmidt. 

Although the wins were few the team played 
exceptionally well on many different occasions. Against 
top-notch West Springfield they battled to a 2 - 2 tie 
and fought extremely hard against powerhouse 
Northampton before falling short 2-1. 

Best of luck to veteran coach Andy Whalen, returning 
team members, and Gumby.

girls soccer 

The girls' varsity soccer team finished its season with an 
8-5-2 record. The team tied for second in a strong B- 
division and earned a berth in the Western Mass. Tourna- 
ment. The Falcons lost a tough game to Ludlow, 3-2 to 
end their season. 

Led by captains Kim Mawaka and Karen Madden, the 
team won three games against A-division opponents in- 
cluding Cathedral, Chicopee, and Classical. Mary and Jodi 
Miller and Michelle Taylor led the scoring attack. The 
fullback line of Kelly Burke, Karen Madden, and Pam 
Morrisette kept the opponents from the goal. Halfbacks 
Sharon Nebel, Sherri Habel, and Anne Fabbri controlled 
midfield. 

Seniors Kim Mawaka, Karen Madden, Kelly Burke, 
Heather Rumplick, Michelle Methe, Maureen McCaffrey, 
Daria Dolecki, and Kelly Morrisette performed well each 
game. 

The team has a group of talented, experienced under- 
classmen ready to fill in the gaps left by the graduating 
seniors. Congratulations on a successful season and good 
luck in 1984!

field hockey 

Although its' record may not show it, the 1983 Varsity Girl's Field 
Hockey Team played some tough hockey this season. Several teams 
faced Minn, with the attitude that it was going to be an easy victory. 
However, within the first few minutes of the game the Falcons showed 
their opponents what they're up against. The team put all it had into all 
*he games and kept playing hard even when they were behind. 

Most of the team will be returning next year except for co-captains 
Rose-Marie Smith and Kathy Tamsey and Seniors Kate Hagarty and 
Wendy Holbrook. The remaining players have all gained useful exper- 
ience which should prove to be a great asset for next year's season.

boys gymnastics 




Sophomore Chip, doing a flip 



The 1983 boys gymnastics team 
had another very successful season. 
Although the men's gymnastics 
team didn't win Western Mass., 
they were undefeated throughout 
their season, (4-0). 

The return of Junior Curt 
Holdsworth was a large asset to the 
team. Strong performances by 
Seniors Peter Kerr and by Juniors 
Ray Putnam and Kevin Holden 
were also contributions to the 
season. 

Coach Keith Lomas was another 
major reason for the continuing 
success of the team. This is Coach 
Lomas's sixth season with the 
men's gymnastics team, and he has 
carefully assisted and guided the 
members of the team. 

Congratulations to the 1983 boys 
gymnastics team!

A spirited girls' gymnastics team lines up before the meet 



Once again, the girls gymnastics team 
has kept Minnechaug at the top! The Fal- 
cons remained undefeated with a record 
of 11-0. This year, the female gymnasts 
were faced with trying to maintain the 
winning tradition established by previous 
teams. For the past three years the Falcons 
have won the Western Massachusetts 
Championship. The question this year 
was-could they possibly obtain it again? 

These fifteen attractive, talented, and 
dedicated gymnasts began training in Au- 
gust and continued training three hours a 
day, six days a week for 3 V2 months. With 
much determination, they worked hard 
to perfect routines in the four competi- 
tive events-uneven bars, floor exercise, 
balance beam, and side horse vaulting. 

Just how has the girls gymnastics team 
maintained their success? Well, it takes 
two dedicated coaches, Pat (Grinch) 
Lynch and Pat (Crash) Cascio, to inspire 
the team with valuable instruction, con- 
stant encouragement, and emotional sup- 
port. The teams managers, Carol Shine 
and Jon Burgess, were also, two very valu- 
able "behind the scenes" contributors.

basketball 



The 1984 Minnechaug Basketball team rebounded from a 
disappointing 5-15 record last year, to have an excellent 
season. The team won most of their games this year, includ- 
ing their last four, which got them into the Western Mass. 
Tournament. They played powerhouse Holyoke to the final 
seconds, but came up short, 68-70. 

Leading the Falcons to their successful season were Senior 
Captains Dave Mendoza and Bill Downes. Mendoza led the 
team in many offensive categories, including scoring 16 
points a game, and rebounding 11 points a game. Downes 
quarterbacked the team and led in assists. Also starting for 
the Falcons was Senior center Troy Dickinson. Junior for- 



ward Bill Sullivan and Junior guard Dean Dickinson also 
played a vital role in the Falcon's success. Coming off the 
bench and playing well were Seniors Jim Barnard, Dave 
Strepka, and Juniors Mark Fegley, Scott Kazmarski, Brian 
Lucas, and Mike Trombley. 

Head Coach Jim Girotti was in charge of the team for his 
tenth year, assisted by Fred Steng and Dan Hanscom. A spe- 
cial thanks to our scorer Kelly Morissette and statitician 
Michelle Methe. The future looks great as six players return 
and a 16-2 Junior Varsity squad is right behind them, who 
captured 1st place this year.

This year's winter cheerleaders did a great job cheer-

The girls' varsity basketball team had a great improvement over last 
season. Led by Co-Captains Kathy Wrede and Karen Madden the girls 
found themselves competitive in every game in a strong B-Division. 

The girls biggest asset was in teamwork where everyone helped in 
the winning cause. Karen Madden led the team in scoring while Kathy 
Wrede, Marry Miller, and Pam Morssette controlled the defensive 
boards. Michelle Soukup controlled the offense at point guard and Lori 
Welch controlled the opponent's offense with her blocked shots. Jean 
Gurecki, Diana Grover, and Julie considine provided valuable play in 
clutch situations. 

Next year looks very promising with only three seniors graduating. 
The underclassmen should have the experience to surprise many 
teams.

hockey 



The Varsity Hockey team had a tough season. The team 
wanted to accomplish the feat of champions of the Fay 
Division, or as done last year, co-champs. The team ended 
with seven wins and eight loses. Captains Jon Burgess and 
John Hartin kept the team going. Jon was one of the top 
goal tenders in Western Mass, as John was a top scorer. 
The Seniors, Jim Plante, Mark Simonds, Scott Brown, Ed 
Salerno, Lee Walker, Bill Gallant and Steve Davis, will be 
missed next year. Hopefully, Juniors Brian Stearns, Matt 
Rogers, Kurt Jones, and Rob Smith will fill in the gaps both 
defensively and offensively. Sophomores John O'Shaug- 
nessy and Don Rostowski will be there to give a helping 
hand. Good luck next season!

The men's ski team had a slow start this 
year, however, their record improved as 
the season went along. Team captains for 
this year's team were Tim Blomberg and 
Ted Moore. Other team members are: Jim 
Metzger, Dave Carlson, Dave Blizard, Jeff 
Collins, Curt Rahilly, Brian Barry, Jim Pol- 
lard, Chris Dunkley, and Chris Roan. 

Every Tuesday the team goes to Berk- 
shire East to practice, and races are on 
Thursday nights. Tim Rogers is the boys' 
coach and the team did well because of 
his influence and training.

The Women's Varsity Ski Team got off 
to a slow start this season. However, un- 
der the direction of Coach Mina and the 
leadership of co-captains K.K. Asbeck and 
Stephanie Quirk, the team has steadily im- 
proved and is currently holding down 
fourth place in the standings. 

Juniors K.K. Asbeck, Stephanie Quirk 
and Tracy Christranson have been tough 
competitors, often placing in the top ten. 
The overall efforts of Sr. Kari Carlson and 
newcomer Jr. Sharon Christianson have 
helped the team secure and hold on to 
fourth place. 

This year's team is quite young and is 
very promising for next year. The efforts 
and steady improvement of Soph. Hillary 
Broderick, Sara Witherton, Leanne Shea, 
Kelly Christianson and Cathy Brainard, 
along with Freshman Tracy Auslander, 
should help to keep the team's hold on 
fourth place.

season with an outstanding record of 9 wins, 3 losses

What would Minnechaug do

would we get our last minute

school store is the place to go. 

The school store sells everything 
from gym shorts to pencils to red hot 
fire balls. 

The school store is operated by the 
Distributive Education students under 
the direction of Mr. Mitchell. These 
students get experience in retailing, 
sales, advetising, and bookkeeping. 
This course was started in 1974 and 
in 1984 is still going strong.

chess club 



Members of the chess club do 
more than just play chess. The 
winners gloat, the losers become 
violent, and everyone has fun! The 
players use their exhilarative wit, 
strategic minds, and unique skills 
to conquer their opponent. Now, 
the chess players do not read 
chess books from cover to cover 
nor do they pout everytime they 
lose. The players continuously 
meet twice a week for practices. 

Minnechaug is not without 
championships from this club. 
They compete against area schools 
as well as each other. The Chess 
Club has won many consecutive 
wins and have remained 
undefeated. Much support has 
been granted by the club advisor, 
Mr. Mina. He has lead the team 
for seven consecutive years. Mr. 
Mina has given the team constant 
encouragement which has, in turn, 
produced winners!!

spirited kids who take Latin. They sponsor 

such activities as the annual Battle of the 

Classes Dance, the Catapult Contest, the 

Volleyball Tournament, the M.J.C.L. State 

Convention, and Family Night. Last 

summer they traveled to Rochester, New 

York for the National Junior Classical 

League Convention. They enjoyed a week 

of sports, academics and creative contests 

while they met people from Alaska to 

Florida. Mrs. Ats' enthusiasm has shaped 

the J.C.L. into one of the most enjoyable, 

worthwhile and popular clubs at

Best friends! 



Reigning Seniors! 




For the first time the class of '86 
sponsored a dance. From 8-11 p.m., the 
entire student body could enjoy a night of 
great music and dancing. The rock 'n roll 
of Quiet Riot to the disco beat of Michael 
Jackson pounded through the walls of the 
gymnasium giving Minnechaug's students a 
reason to dance the night away. Although 
the attendance wasn't as high as the Battle 
of the Classes Dance, the students who 
did attend the Class of '86 dance had a 
terrific time dancing to the D.J.'s music.

Sorry, wrong number. 

Every morning a voice booms out 
over the loud speaker saying, "Good 
morning! Please join me in a few 
moments during which each one of 
us may engage in private meditation." 
This is then followed by the Pledge 
of Allegiance and all kinds of 
important information, such as 
canceled classes. Did you ever 
wonder whose voice you were- 
listening to? Well, that person is an 
office aide. Besides morning 
announcements, the office aides work 
with attendance records, answering 
the telephone, sorting mail, and 
filing. Through this work, these aides 
get experience with office 
procedures and background material 
for a secretarial field. The secretaries 
who work in the office find the aides 
very helpful because they make their 
jobs a little bit easier.

Are you planning to pursue a 
career in nursing? If the answer is 
yes, then why don't you volunteer 
your free time to become a nurse's 
aide. 

The aides help Mrs. Wolford, our 
nurse, during their study halls and 
cancelled classes. They get 
experience with small medical 
emergencies as well as other basic 
office procedures. They help Mrs. 
Wolford by keeping and filing 
medical information on the students, 
and taking care of those who are ill 
or injured. Hopefully they never have 
to deal with a seriously injured 
person. The nurse is very appreciative 
of their help.

library aides 



If one were to go into the 

library at any time during the day, 

one would see a few students 

behind the main desk, busy at 

work. They are the library aides. 

They perform different duties to 

help the library run more 

smoothly. A library aide will check 

out a book for a student, place 

books back on the shelves, get 

periodicals upon request, and file 

those overdue slips. If one ever 

was in need of information and 

didn't know where to find it, ask a 

library aide. This is another part of 

their job. They are a great help to 

the library.

This year there were four one act plays 
performed: "All's Fair in Love and Jealousy", 
"Hello Out There", "The Runaway", and 
"Ah Euripedes". 

"All's Fair in Love and Jealousy" was about 
a young girl who caused trouble. She invited 
an unpopular girl to a party and tried to plant 
cocaine on her, but the plan back fired. Lead 
roles were held by Deb Piggot, Chris Rymsa, 
and Nancy Picot. 

"Hello Out There" is the story of a lonely 
gambler who has been convicted for adultry. 
While in prison he mets a poor girl and they 
make plans to be married; however, their 
plans are ruined when the gambler is killed 
by the husband of the adultress. Lead roles 
were played by Tom Burget and Ramona 
Aberdine. 

"The Runaway" is about a young boy, 
played by James Goodrow, who runs away 
from home, and how his fairy Godmother, 
Nancy Piwonski, trys to stop him. 

"Euripedes" is a Greek myth about a man 
whose wife dies. The man goes to Hades to 
try and bring his wife back into the world of 
the living. He is allowed to bring her back as 
long as he doesn't look at her on the jour- 
ney; but he fails. The wife was played by Rill

yearbook 




Did you ever stop to wonder why anyone 
would want the responsibilities of a yearbook 
editor? The answer is quite simple — "the 
feeling of accomplishment and never ending 
sense of satisfaction." 

Being an editor requires lots of hard work 
and determination. It also means 
commitment. Long hours of cropping 
pictures, doing layouts and writing copy, as 
well as after school meeting, are all a part of 
this commitment. It's a job that's fun and 
rewarding, but along with that comes the 
bad times. (Ask any yearbook member!!) This 
year's editors overcame many loopholes and 
hardships. Trying to produce a yearbook 
better than the 1982-1983 Falcon was a 
challenge. Through it all, our advisor Mrs. 
Maiwald stood by to encourage us and offer 
help when we needed it. 

The 1983-1984 yearbook staff pulled 
through the problems with one last thought, 
"Thank God it's over!!!"

"battle of the classes" dance 




Guitarist Darren Izzo! Caught in Action! 



This year's Battle of the Classes 
Dance, sponsored by J.C.L., turned 
out to be a terrific evening for 
everyone. "Spector," featuring 
three Minnechaug graduates, Mark 
Guthrie, Darren Izzo, and Paul 
Drumheller, did an excellent job of 
getting everyone into the spirit. 
They also suprised everyone with 
the news that they were splitting 
up because Mark Guthrie, lead 
singer, was going into the Army. 
Half-way through the dance, Mr. 
Tipaldi made his debute with the 
announcements that all football 
players should be in bed and also 
the final attendance tally for the 
winning class. Of course, the 
sophomores emerged victoriously 
once again.

The Model Congress headed by Ms. 
Brewer is one of Minnechaug's most 
prestigious organizations. 

The Model Congress members must 
possess two very important qualities: 
the ability to speak well in front of an 
audience and the ability to write a bill 
in the Congressional method. 

This group practices debates in prep- 
aration for the annual Model Congress 
held at American International College. 

Minnechaug has been very success- 
ful with Congress and has had Bills 
commended by Governor King. Con- 
gratulations to all Model Congress 
members and continued success!

Student Government is an 
organization which serves as a bridge 
between the administration, the faculty, 
and the student body. Elected student 
representatives convey the opinions and 
ideas of the student body to the 
administration and faculty in order to 
make the school better. 

Hard working student representatives 
spend much of their free time making 
posters for fund raisers, preparing for 
dances, attending meetings, making 
agendas, counting election ballots, and 
donating money to other school or 
community groups. However, student 
Government's foremost duty is to keep 
the "Spirit of Chaug" alive 




Reps, voice their opinion.

Whenever you see a Minnechaug band member 
out in the cold, November weather, you can 
probably bet that that person is selling fruit. Well, 
that's exactly what they did, the band sold one and a 
half truck loads of oranges and grapefruits. 

The Wind Ensemble and Concert Band, directed 
by Mr. Charles Beeler, worked long and hard with 
the 86 band members for their annual Pops/Dinner 
concert. The concert was held on March 23 and 24, 
in the Minnechaug auditorium at 8 p.m. 

All the hours of band rehearsals, night rehearsals, 
practicing paid off when the entire band went to 
Baltimore in May. It was an exciting, fun trip for 
everyone.

Minnechaug's Madrigals 



What would life be without music? Music 
s an entertaining, essential part of all our 
daily lives. It is safe to say that there is no 
ane who does not enjoy some kind of music. 

Minnechaug High School realizes this and 
orovides a program that allows its students to 
extend their talents to the highest level 
Dossible. 

A first year student in the choral program 
itarts out at the first level. For girls this is the 
girls chorus and for the males, the concert 
choir. 

Concert choir is entered by audition along 
with the honors choir, the Madrigal singers, 
which requires special talent and out of 
school performances. 

Minnechaug's music department is well 
represented every year at the Western-Mass 
District Competition. Many of these students 
go on to compete and represent their school 
at ligher levels. All students also have the 
opportunity to participate in an annual folk 
festival and a music drama production put on 
every two years. Both continually result in 
fine performances enjoyed by much of the 
community. 

The overall reputation brought about by a 
combination of interested talented students 
and the teaching of Mr. Warren Amerman is 
one of the finest in Western Mass.

semi-formal 



Christmas is a good time for getting 
together with friends. The Semi-Formal 
is a very special dance that is appropri- 
ately held at Christmas time. On Satur- 
day, December 17, at 8:00 p.m.; 335 peo- 
ple came to this annual dance. It was 
held in the schools old gym, but that 
didn't bother anyone. Mirage was the 
band that played and a good time was 
had by all. Mr. Eakins dressed up as this 
year's Santa Claus and had fun passing 
out candy canes to the students. Every- 
one looks forward to this dance very 
much and hopefully their memories of it 
are pleasant ones. 




The 1983 Semi-Formal is underway! 




Merry Christmas, Ho-Ho-Ho-! Kelly and Glen dancing 



Having a good time.

mathletes 




Only an avid math student could 
stand the long hours of practice and 
studying that go into the preparation of 
a Mathletes competition. (Ask any 
member of the Mathletes and I'm sure 
they'll comfirm it!) 

Hardworking and dedicated are only 
two of the adjectives used to describe 
this remarkable team. The students 
who compete five times a year with as 
many as seventeen different schools, 
stay after twice a week to practice and 
sharpen their mathematical minds. The 
categories covered in the competion 
are Algebra I, Geometry, Trigonom- 
etry, Algebra II, Complex Numbers, 
and Analytical Geometry. 

Thanks to advisor Mr. Granaudo, the 
team has shown great success through- 
out the years.

the falcon players 




"Muggie's Merry Christmas" 

The Falcon Players are one of the newer 
groups at Minnechaug. They work to pre- 
serve and promote theatre arts in school 
and in the community. Their first major 
production was in December when they 
produced two Christmas One-Act Plays. 
The Falcon Players are not, as a group, 
connected to the Fall One-Act Competi- 
tions, or the annual spring production, 
but they do hope, one day, to send the 
winning One Act from the fall competi- 
tion to a regional and state competition. 

The members are simply students at 
Minnechaug who are interested, in some 
way, in theatre and the stage (actors, di- 
rectors, technies, set designers, electri- 
cians . . . . ) Goals for next year include 
finding new and better supplies for the 
future theatrical productions at Minne- 
chaug.

The ribbon routine 





Tremendous athletic ability combined with excellent choreography wen 
two key elements to get another successful gym show. The show featured higl 
school gymnastics at its very finest. Performances on floor, beam, parallel bars 
horse, uneven parallel bars, and rings were the main events of the evening: 
Dance routines choreographed by Kristen Smith brought pizzaz to the showi 
The long hours of hard work and practice were obvious in each and ever; 
performance. Each move was done with agility and grace. 

The most breathtaking event of the evening was the Tiger Leap. Here the al 
around champion, Curt Holdsowrth, attempted to vault over the horse, each: 
time adding another team member to the top. The total reached eight team 
members. It proved most breathtaking to Jon Burgess who was the one on the 
bottom of the pile. 

Congratulations are in order to the entire gymnastics team for anothe. 
outstanding year.
